To make a closure, here is summary of the current decision (for Boost
1.70) that we just agreed on Gitter:

Stefan Seefeld @stefanseefeld 14:59
yes. But given that we haven't updated that in a while, I'm not sure
anyone will notice :-) I think it's better we think a bit about what
we want that number to represent (and then, how to generate it
properly), before we change it again.

Mateusz Łoskot @mloskot 15:00
Sure. I just expected/pushed towards we make a clear decision now.
So, I'm satisfied with what you've summarised
